I had high expectations when I went to see the Lone Ranger last night. But while the movie was not bad, it was not great either. The last 20 minutes are the best in the whole movie. The story seemed realy disjointed. It's told to a young boy by an elderly Tonto who is now in a carnival side-show. Some parts of the movie don't flow well and some things aren't explained well. For example, the Lone Ranger is a lawyer fresh out of law school from back East. Yet he rides Silver like a trained stuntman. At least they did get the reason of how the name Lone Ranger came about. Johnny Depp seems to be playing Tonto like Jack Sparrow. His walk is the same and his mannerisms are the same.
I'd give it an 8 out of 10, mainly because of the last 20 minutes being heep fun. Good for the whole family.

Really slow. Really bad. They made the Lone Ranger a total sissy. Tonto is a mess, is he funny or serious? Is this a comedy or action? And the story is so slow and dumb. Really bad.

Why do these producers and Directors ruin traditional Iconic TV/old traditional movies/shows and turn it into a digital computer generated film, with a few funny lines, that are familiar to the old story of the lone ranger. But at the end of the day i left the film saying to myself, can I even recommend that flick as a rental. As in Superman its all about the action and fights and virtually no meaningful story line.... Depp and Hammer are really good actors but is was like a corn ball movie...

This is by far the best movie we have seen this year. Excellent acting, breath taking scenery, great script. Loved the way story unfolded. This is a must see.

The "wraparound" story detracted from the film, and the movie itself had enough cheese to supply Taco Bell for a month, but neither of these things were enough to wreck the high entertainment value of the film. Lots of action and comedy. And the climactic scene with the Lone Ranger theme was chock full of classic high-adventure antics we've come to expect from Bruckheimer.
